A new report suggests that more people are accepting the view that marriage isn’t necessary to have a family.

The Pew Research Center finds that nearly one in three American children under 18 is living with a parent or parents who are unwed or no longer married. That’s a fivefold increase from 1960.

U.S. census data released in September showed marriages hit an all-time low of 52 percent for adults 18 and over.

About 39 percent of Americans surveyed say marriage is becoming obsolete. In 1978, just 28 percent believed that.

When asked what constitutes a family, the vast majority of Americans agree that a married couple, with or without children, fits that description. But four of five surveyed pointed also to an unmarried, opposite-sex couple with children or a single parent. Three of five people said a same-sex couple with children was a family.

Is marriage important? What does family mean to you?

A unique hiking group in the Springs, called Colorado Mountain Mamas, brings together moms and their little ones.

The idea, to get moms and their babies outside, get some exercise and even provide support to one another, ” You get out, you get exercise, you are getting vitamin D, meeting other moms with kids your same age, totally a social experience,” explains mom Molly Bearndt.

A mom in Denver started the group in 2003 and a Colorado Springs branch started up last winter. The moms hike any time of the year, it’s a nice way to fight cabin fever in the winter, “One of the great things that we have here in Colorado Springs is it’s still sunny in the winter time,” says hike leader Melonie Frank.

Babies need to be able to hold their head up by themselves before they can go on a hike, and when they start walking Mountain Mamas offers toddler hikes. The baby hikes tend to be longer and the baby is in a pack. For the toddler hikes, the kids get out of the pack and get a chance to take on a shorter hike.

Moms either pay a yearly registration fee of $65 to be a part of the group, or for a little less, pay for five to ten hikes at a time. For moms that want to try it out the first hike is free, and Mountain Mamas will even provide you with a pack if you need one.

What happens when you are sick? Not just a minor cold or headache, but when you are suffering severely from a stomach virus or the flu? As a sometimes single Mom (husband is currently deployed), with no local relatives, I began thinking about what I’d do if I was so sick I couldn’t do my normal duties as a mother. Here are a few tips to help you weather a day or two of sickness.

  • Stock up on necessities: gatorade, tylenol, soup, jell-o, frozen dinners. You will want to have all of this on hand, so you aren’t trying to navigate a busy store, sick, with kids.
  • Let yourself take a break. Your body will need sleep and rest in order to get well. The whole world won’t fall apart if you let the kids watch more TV than normal or you leave the dirty dishes in the sink. If you have to sleep while the kids are in school, it is ok.
  • Call for back up. If you have family in the area, don’t feel bad about calling for help. If you don’t have family, see if a friend can take your little ones for a few hours.
Preparation is key, otherwise you may be scrambling and sick. What are your ideas for getting through a sickness, alone?
